Monday the 18th.

Went back to the school. Nothing remarkable to day.
Reading in a Volume of the guardian I found something in it which I will copy.1
1. Here follows, on two pages of his Diary, Philip Sidney's translation of Psalm 137, five eight-line stanzas, which appeared in No. 18, not No. 19 as JQA cites it, of The Guardian, 1 April 1713. In JQA's edition of the work, London, 1745, at MQA, it is found at 1:84–85.
